NEPTUNE COMMERCIAL HIGH PERFORMANCE TURBINE METER


Neptune High Performance (HP) Turbine meters provide one of the largest flow ranges for turbine meters. They are specifically designed to monitor moderate to high flow rate applications like manufacturing facilities, processing plants, and custody transfer applications.

Sizes 1 ½”, 2", 3", 4", 6", 8", and 10"

High Performance Turbine water meters provide an extremely wide flow range

hp-turbine-meter

Maximum continuous flow rates may be exceeded by as much as 25% for intermittent periods allowing all HP Turbine water meters to meet or exceed the latest performance and accuracy requirements of AWWA C701.

Each HP Turbine consists of a strong, lead-free, high-copper alloy maincase, an AWWA Class II turbine measuring element, and a roll-sealed register. The maincase is corrosion-resistant, lightweight, and compact. Inlet and outlet connections are both flanged. Strainers are available to prevent debris from entering the meter and to reduce the effects of uneven water flow due to upstream piping variations.
The unitized measuring element (UME) allows for quick, easy, in-line interchangeability. A specially-designed assembly permits water volume to be measured accurately at all flows. The hydrodynamically-balanced, thrust-compensated rotor relieves pressure on the thrust bearings to minimize wear while providing sustained accuracy over its extended operating life. Direct coupling of the rotor to the gear train eliminates revenue loss due to slippage during fast starts and line surges. A calibration fin allows in-field calibration of the UME to lengthen service life and to ensure accurate registration.

The roll-sealed register eliminates leaking and fogging. A magnetic drive couples the register with the measuring element.

APPLICATION
The HP Turbine water meter is designed for applications where flow rates are consistently moderate to high.

SYSTEMS COMPATIBILITY
The HP Turbine water meter is adaptable to all present and future systems providing flexibility.
